(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A ray of light is incident in water on a plane water-glass boundary. The angle of incidence is 30 degrees. Calculate the angle of refraction. (Refractive index of glass with respect to air =3/2, refractive index of water with respect to air = 4/3).

2. Relevant equations

n1sini = n2sinr

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried approaching it with several methods, but I am puzzled. How do you get the glass to water refractive index from the data given??

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
